jurassic park: the only possible wedding theme

Yesterday, Liam got home from Ottawa, where he attended his cousin’s wedding. Being a big fan of weddings and sappiness, the pre-sleep talk rolled around to the details. It apparently had a 50s theme. When he told me this, I realized I’d never put much thought into wedding themes before.

Me: I wonder what my wedding theme would be…. probably Jurassic Park.

Liam: … what?

Me: All the tables could be named after gentle dinosaurs, like the brachiosaurus or the triceratops.

Liam: Sure.

Me: I suppose I could use the other dinosaurs too, but I don’t want people who sit at the velociraptor table to think that I see them as cunningly evil, or the people at the t-rex table to think that I see them as big dumb bullies. *

Liam: True…

Me: Maybe they would feel better if there were t-rex cake toppers.

Yep. This will make them feel better for sure. (Source)

Me: Would a Jurassic Park theme mean that the first dance would have to be “Jurassic Park” by Weird Al?

Liam: That would be weird.

Me: Yeah, I suppose you’re right. It would probably be better to play as the guests are sitting down to their supper.

Liam: …..

Me: Decor would be easy. A few jungle looking trees, and you’re set.

Liam: Does this mean that your grand entrance would be to the main theme of the movie? (This is why I love this man.)


Liam: Amanda, that would be ridiculous.

Me: NO! That would be PERFECT. Admit it, you’d have fun at my Jurassic Park wedding.

Liam: I would. But you’re still ridiculous.

*I wouldn’t make anyone sit at the spinosaurus’ table though, becuase that guy was just an outright asshole.

  1. That sounds like a wonderful wedding!!! Steve and I have talked about naming the tables after “girls his best mate has tried to get off with”, but realised we wouldn't have enough guests to make the joke work…


  2. I think a friend of mine would love this theme. She's a big fan of the movie, and she's currently reading the book for the first time. I'm the type of person who really would like a dorky themed wedding. LOL



  3. Amanda says:

    That's hilarious Sarah! It would be interesting to see all the guests who didn't quite understand the joke too, I bet. “Why does our table say Catherine…?”


  4. Amanda says:

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who would enjoy this wedding theme! Makes me feel a little less odd haha.

    It sounds awesomely kick-ass! 🙂 I LOVE Jurassic Park! Wish I could've had a themed wedding (I just did the court house thing).

    Also, I love your BG. Penguins are cool. 🙂 I've became obsessed recently.


  6. Amanda says:

    Thank you very much! My boyfriend designed it for me. 🙂


  7. Heaton says:

    I would TOTALLY attend such a wedding. You should make the ring bearer dress up like a dinosaur and roar a lot, and maybe bite a couple of people.


  8. Amanda says:

    That's a great idea! As long as I clarify to the ring bearer that they can only nibble. There's no need for anyone attending my wedding to leave missing chunks of flesh! That would put a damper on the night, I think.


  9. Kellie says:

    The only themed wedding I ever went to was a Moulin Rouge one … but your dinosaur theme would lick them hollow!

    Ooh, I just realised how that last bit sounded. How have I never noticed how filthy that expression is?

    Sorry, I'm easily distracted.


  10. Amanda says:

    I've never heard that expression before, but just for fun I'm going to try and work it into my every day conversation; it's too hilarious not to!

    I bet the Moulin Rouge wedding was beautiful though!


  11. Mrs. Tuna says:

    I'm being forced to plan my daughter “Sheldon's” wedding. Maybe I'll just eat her and the fiance like a starving Carnivore.


  12. Amanda says:

    Being forced to plan a wedding doesn't sound like much fun! I hope you get through it as easily as possible, and hopefully without any cannibalism! haha 🙂


  13. Jurassic park would make weddings more tolerable me thinks.


  14. Amanda says:

    I enjoy weddings myself but I certainly think this theme would make them a lot more fun!


  15. Mary says:

    Your wedding would rock. Love the idea for the theme song! My brother and his wife had a fantastic steampunk wedding a couple years ago. It was the first themed wedding we attended and I LOVED it!

    Just stopped by to say hi and thanks for letting me know that you enjoyed the smoothie! Have a blessed day.


  16. Amanda says:

    A steampunk wedding sounds like fun! Thanks for stopping by, Mary. 🙂


  17. Amy says:

    That ROWR! noise the T-Rex makes would be excellent right after you say I do. And the whole time leading up to that the floor should shudder like he's walking towards you…


  18. Amanda says:

    I love this. There would have to be a glass of water somewhere so everyone could see it shake too. With all these suggestions, this really does have the possibility to be the best wedding ever.


  19. hilarious post! I would love to go to your jurassic park themed wedding, no matter what dinosaur table i sat at!


  20. Amanda says:

    Thank you! I'd be sure to seat you at a kind dinosaur's table. 😀


  21. Heather says:

    OMG. This would be awesome. So much better than tables named after tropical islands or the bride's cats.


  22. Amanda says:

    I actually laughed out loud at “the bride's cats” haha. Thanks Heather!


  23. Ellen says:

    Hi, you are my new friend. I just found this as i was searching for Jurassic Park Weddings. I'm not officially planning it yet but soon! There should be a special club for all people with Jurassic park weddings! I am so using those cake toppers.


  24. Amanda says:

    There really should be! I hope your Jurassic Park wedding goes amazingly Ellen!


  25. […] something. Whether it’s tv (we’re almost done The Office right now) or movies (usually Jurassic Park), we’re always watching something to […]
